Los Angeles, November 5, 1952 80-11 Mr. R. L. Adamson: cc: Mr. W. H. Johnson, Las Vegas I hand you herewith copy of new proposal by the Water District to buy the water producing and water distributing facilities of the railroads and the water company in Las Vegas. I would appreciate if you would review it keeping the following thoughts in mind, and let me have your views: You will note in subdivision (b) they refer to the location of a Shop Well by section, they also limit a new well to a radius of 100 ft. from the existing well. Will you please check with respect to the description, and also the effect of the 100 ft. restriction on the possible location of the new well. I also draw your particular attention to subdivision (e) wherein we agree to encumber certain railroad lands with drilling restrictions, and in our negotiations subsequent to submission of their first bid it was understood that we would not encumber the Stewart ranch. Will you please advise what lands are to be encumbered with this drilling restriction under subdivision (e), and particularly whether the Stewart ranch is included therein. EEB:JL E. E. Bennett.
